When you commit to our NXT lacrosse team, you commit to the full year. It is vital that attendance at practices and tournaments is taken seriously in order to build team camaraderie, chemistry and consistency. We use the area’s most elite facilities for all of our programming; the Proving Grounds in Conshohocken (fall/summer) and Main Line Sports Center in Berwyn (winter). United Sports in Downingtown is a main venue for many of our events.
